Salty Oats

By Marensmorsels @marentweets


Long time no food, yes?!

It was the strangest thing. I just woke up this morning and said I want to blog! So… I’m blogging. Plus I miss all of you so terribly. It’s actually hard to stay away.

This morning I made oats, probably for the first time since Christmas.

In the Mix

  • 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup fat free milk
  • 2 tsp brown sugar
  • scant 1 tsp milled flax seeds
  • vanilla
  • salt to taste
  • and raisins

It’s a good mix. Plus I cooked the oats a little longer than the required 5 minutes so they’re sort of whipped

I’m also enjoying a piping hot mug of English Breakfast Tea. It’s my tea of choice lately.

The End… Scary

My 6 year stint in college is almost over! Can you believe it? I know I cant. The whole concept of graduation seems surreal. I know it will happen but I can’t wrap my head around the fact that school will literally be over. A permanent summer vacation from classes, exams, quizzes, PAPERS!

So here’s the skinny… I have 15 days to

  • write 2 papers
    • one on Michelangelo’s hidden self portraits in the Sistine Chapel including the Last Judgment, a Pieta sculpture, and a fresco in the Vatican
    • one on Michelangelo’s Leda and the Swan and Rape of Ganymede discussing their similarities and how they are a pair by using Michelangelo’s Poetry as a first person source

On a side note… I’m so smart for picking one topic and turning it into two papers. So much less research to do! I’m giving myself a pat on the back for that one


  • Do an oral report on the hidden self portraits (deadline Thursday)
  • Write a paper for the third class I’m taking that has gotten exactly no attention all quarter due to the other two classes. Getting a C in a class that should definitely be an A is a little sad but I feel acceptable in these circumstances.
  • Take a final in the class that has gotten no attention. Luckily it’s open note and the study guide tells us the questions before… Wikipedia is my lifesaver!

It will be a pretty big final push to graduation! Luckily I’m really on top of everything, very uncharacteristic of me in school. Maybe it just took me 6 years to beat procrastination.

I hope you all are having a great early summer! I hope to see you at lunch today. I have serious blogging on the brain.

Question of the Day
